Anyone know how to make bagels?

I'm still interested in handmade recipes too
Miss Jayne has an AWESOME recipe on her website! They are really easy to make, too!

Never more will you pay $3 for a 'fancy schmancy' bagel! Scoff at bakery prices! Eat bagels everyday for a fraction of the cost.

Makes about 8 bagels.

4 C. Bread Flour (NO substitutions!)

1 TBS Sugar

1 1/2 tsp. Salt

1 TBS Veggie Oil

2 tsp. Instant Yeast (No substitutions!)

1 1/4 - 1 1/2 C. Warm Water

Kosher Salt, Parmesan, Sesame Seeds etc...for toppings

Mix all ingredients in bowl. Knead for 10 minutes, until dough is uniform and smooth.

Cut into 8 pieces and form each into a ball. Let rest for 20 minutes under a buttered piece of plastic wrap or damp tea towel.

Roll balls out into a 'snake' that is double the width of one or your hands. Wrap around your dominant hand and roll through the center into a loop.

Let rest another 20 minutes under the plastic wrap or damp towel.

In the meantime, fill a pot with about a gallon of water and add a TBS of sugar.

Let water come to a boil. Preheat oven to 425*F.

Place a few bagels at a time into boiling water. Boil for 1 minute on each side then place on a cooling rack to dry. Top with any toppings at this stage.

Bake at 450*F on buttered cookies sheets for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

These are some of the best bagels you will ever taste!
